What is Swedish Massage?
Swedish Massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that uses classic massage techniques to manipulate the muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
The massage is soothing and improves muscle condition, circulation and help you feel relaxed.
Different massage techniques will be applied, with the amount of pressure appropriate for you. Unlike deep tissue massage, Swedish massage therapy uses softer strokes on more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes on thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.
Swedish massage treatments are given on a massage table with oils being used.
This is typically a very relaxing treatment.
